ad hoc chocolate chip cookies

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s been almost three weeks since I came back from Sonoma and Napa Valley. I’m still longing for that great wine and, of course, more Thomas Keller treats! The easiest ad hoc recipe to find and make on a whim where these ad hoc chocolate chip cookies. The recipe calls for two types of chocolate and surprisingly no vanilla. The best part is that you don’t need to soften your butter beforehand, as the recipe has you beat the butter into submission in your stand mixer! Yay! You can find the recipe here.

Oh, and don’t worry. I’ll be posting my ffwD make-up dish early next week!

    I don’t have the book, but I’m starting to feel an itch to make some of TK’s recipes going around the web!

    Oh my…this looks soooo good, right now! No vanilla! So interesting. This recipe looks a lot easier than the choc chip cookie recipe in the last book. I like the tip about spraying the tops with a mist of water too. Thanks for sharing!

    What a great trip! And your cookies sound great, too. I love the idea of a recipe where you don’t have to leave butter out in advance. (Let’s just say I do some of my baking spur of the moment.)

    Your trip sounds absolutely wonderful! And your cookies look scrumptious! I love that you don’t soften the butter first. I just treated myself to the Bouchon Bakery Cookbook and have found many recipes I want to try!

    Just read the recipe and it does look really good. Unfortunately my stand blender has just died so I might have to wait a while to actually make these.

    Just had some tea from Bouchon today…was dying for a cookie but I resisted! Thomas Keller knows how to make a good cookie.

    This looks just as good.

    yum – and I would be quite happy to make cookies without vanilla – I find it odd that it is in so many recipes and often leave it out – just need chocolate πŸ™‚

    OMG, these look incredible! I have to say – the idea of not having to use softened butter totally sells me on these…I don’t have a microwave and I’m constantly forgetting to take the butter out ahead of time!
